  • I Really Enjoyed Teaming Up with Kit Again!!!

    ---4.5 Stars--- Another exciting, intriguing, and enjoyable read in the Washington Whodunit Cozy Mystery Book Series!!! This is the third book I’ve read in this book series. I previously read, reviewed, and blogged about Colleen’s third book in this series, “Calamity at the Continental Club,” a couple years ago and Colleen’s fourth book in the series, “K Street Killing,” last year so I was very excited to read her latest installment in the series, “Gore in the Garden.” I really enjoyed teaming up with Kit again and solving another mystery! Kit has become one of my favorite amateur sleuths!!! Again, I really liked the main characters! I was so excited to see the whole crew back together! I enjoyed Kit, her husband Doug, their adorable dog Clarence, her BFF Meg, her boss Congresswoman Maeve Dixon, and her interesting hippie younger brother Sebastian that creates some interesting and uncomfortable situations for her lol!! I really get so invested in characters sometimes – especially in a book series, so it’s great to see them happy and still all together! Also, the supporting characters were well-developed and amply played off the main cast. This book has a creative story line, intriguing plot points, excellent mystery structured scenarios, fantastic writing style, well-developed characters, and keeps you fully engaged through the last page! Without giving too much away, there is a scene in the book at the United States Botanic Garden in D.C. where the characters are gathered at an event and are awaiting a special viewing of the blooming of a corpse flower. Now, the author does a great job at describing the details, however, I was very intrigued and just had to Google this flower. Very interesting! I read a couple articles and watched a few YouTube videos that showed that actual blooming which apparently it takes this flower 7-10 years to bloom!!! And it’s named a corpse flower because it actually smells like decomp right as it’s about to bloom. I LOVE books that teach me new things and this book not only educated me about this really intriguing flower, but it sparked my curiosity to even take it one step further and research it online! Now I actually want to find a garden and attend such a viewing! Again, I loved the D.C. backdrop in this book series that continued into this fifth book as the author shows her D.C. roots by throwing in so many references throughout the book since the book does take place there. I have been to D.C. a few times and loved it. So, I really enjoy when I read a book from there that the real D.C. is found in the pages – and it sure was! There are some very predictable scenes. However, there are still a few unexpected twists and turns that you won’t see coming! This is the fifth book in the Washington Whodunit Book Series. Although, this book is part of a book series, it can absolutely be read on its own as a standalone. As you can see, I started in the middle of the series, with book three, four, and now five and haven’t got lost yet lol! All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend this book to anyone interested in an intriguing, suspenseful, exciting, and enjoyable cozy mystery book. **Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book and have voluntarily provided an honest, and unbiased review in accordance with FTC regulations.**

  • Intriuging story, wonderful characters

    This was my first Washington Whodunnit, and I enjoyed it. I loved the connection between Kit and Doug, and how they supported each other. The crime itself was interesting one, and the story had plenty of twists and surprises to keep the reader guessing. I found the political bits and pieces a bit tedious but it did not take away from the story. I recommend this book. I received a copy through Goddess Fish Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

  • Gore in the Garden

    Gore in the Garden is my first experience with Colleen J. Shogan’s writing. I believe this fifth installment from the Washington Whodunit series can be read as a stand alone. I was able to jump right in and read it without feeling as though I have missed some information that was in the previous books. I thought this was a great and fun read. I found myself giggling at times and I was enthralled in the mystery. I was definitely surprised at the “whodunit”. I give Gore in the Garden five plus stars. I would love to read the other books from the Washington Whodunit series. I look forward to more by Colleen J Shogan in the future. I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

  • Great cozy Series set in D.C.

    Another edge of your seat Cozy. Colleen Shogan continues in book 5 of the series to give the reader a page turning Cozy Murder Mystery. In this installment Shogan adds a new character to the mix in Kit's brother Sebastian. There are some great sub characters that add to the story. Giving up on keeping Kit from getting into trouble with investigating her husband Doug's joins her and helps out with the sleuthing...deciding it's better to be a part of the investigation and keeping Kit out of harms way. This is a fun and intriguing series. I have enjoyed each of the books I have read in this series. I received a complimentary copy.

    Thanks for your feedback!
